About Pain NO PIAN NO GAIN
Previously, when I saw No pain No gain, I understood it from the perspective of fitness, without muscle soreness, there is no possibility of muscle gain, and without the grinding on the road to fitness, there will be no change in shape.
However, from the perspective of pain, I have a new and different understanding.
Pain (chronic or intractable pain is the main focus of this article), regardless of age level, has a serious impact on an individual's quality of life and has a significant impact on the ability to work, socialize, be active, concentrate, go about one's daily life, and sleep quality.
A 2011 study by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academy of Sciences reported that pain is a "public health crisis" and that more people suffer from chronic pain than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined.
Pain is so complex that it goes far beyond the rendezvous of nerve conduction and sensory experience, mixing emotions, sensory perceptions, culture, individual experiences, genes, spiritual meanings, habitual physiological responses, and other complex factors.
Pain is a very individual experience, and there is no one way to deal with all pain.
The mechanisms that cause pain are complex and variable, and despite the plethora of treatments available, pain seems to be insurmountable.
Simply put, pain is a protective mechanism that lets us know that something is going on in our body and the brain allows the body to respond appropriately. Sometimes the unpleasantness and tension we experience in response to stress and threats can also bring on pain, and when we are threatened physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, the nervous system automatically reacts to ensure that we can keep ourselves safe from trauma. (In this protective sense, pain is a good thing.) But sometimes this protection creates new problems for us. There are multiple pathways in the human nervous system that can give rise to too many protective signals, and further research now shows that the body does not need a tangible stimulus to produce pain, and that both internal thoughts and external circumstances can cause pain.
Pain research now divides pain into three types: physical, emotional, and post-traumatic pain.
Physical pain is caused by temporal injuries and tissue damage.
Emotion-based pain is the result of strong, unresolved emotions that are "stored" in the body.
Traumatic pain is the result of our strong reactions to overwhelming events, frightening events, and humiliating events. People with post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) tend to have a fairly high chance of developing chronic pain.
These three basic types of pain sometimes overlap with each other, causing greater distress to the sufferer.
Pain does not represent the injury suffered.
Nor is pain an accurate indicator of health.
Humans are born with the ability to overcome stress and trauma.
Recognize that the body is our own most valuable friend, rather than allowing pain and obstacles to become the enemy of your healing.
We should keep our minds, hearts and spirits open and learn to become masters of our body's natural resources. Learning to self-regulate and discover the partnership between body, mind, emotions and spiritual awareness brings us a healthy balance.
As Pilates instructors, we need to educate our guests through a variety of movements to help them regain awareness of how their bodies feel, develop the ability to self-correct, and return to a healthy, happy life!
If pain is always with us, can we try to accept it and embrace it.
If pain is a monster in our body that needs to be tamed, I prefer to say that by changing our awareness, there is no more monster in our body that needs to be tamed.
Pain allows you to know yourself better and change yourself.
Without pain, there is no growth!
